Tiger And Phil Made Quite The Charge, But Came Up Just Short
Mickelson set a course record with a 30 through the front 9, but was 1 over par in the back 9 and faded back from the leader, who is currently Kenny Perry at 12 under par. Tiger had a solid day as well, but bogeys on 17 and 18 killed his chances for a comeback.
Woods and Mickelson were paired together, and it will probably end up being the best grouping of the final round. They seemed to feed off each other, and they definitely were playing some inspired golf.
Unfortunately for both of them, they dug themselves in too deep of holes during the first 3 rounds. They were both 7 strokes out of the lead, and it proved to be insurmountable in the end.
The good news for Tiger fans is that he's definitely back, and ready to compete at a high level, especially when it counts the most. Hopefully we'll see more epic battles between Tiger, Phil and everyone else many more times this year.
